New Winnie-the-Pooh book goes on sale
LONDON (AFP) ñ A new book of Winnie-the-Pooh stories — the first to be published in 81 years — went on sale on Monday, featuring a new character alongside the absent-minded, honey-loving bear.
“Return to the Hundred Acre Wood” is a collection of 10 new stories featuring Pooh and his three friends Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore, and is the first to be published since 1928 when “The House At Pooh Corner” was released.
The tales of Winnie-the-Pooh, which were originally created by British author A.A. Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shepard, have been translated into 50 languages around the world.
The characters have also featured in Disney cartoons and a wide range of spin-off merchandising for children.
The characters were based on toys owned by Milne’s son, Christopher Robin, and the stories take place in the Hundred Acre Wood, which was based on a forest near the author’s home in East Sussex, southern England.
Written by author David Benedictus and illustrator Mark Burgess, the new book was approved by the Trustees of the Pooh Properties and is published by Egremont.
Pooh’s new friend Lottie the Otter is described by the publishers as “a feisty character who is bound to cause a stir in the Hundred Acre Wood.”
“Lottie has her own very definite ideas about how things should be done. She believes that one must always follow the correct etiquette,” said Benedictus, who says she embodies Pooh’s values of “friendship and adventure.”
